Subject: Permission to use footage
Hello, what a great find, this short video is wonderful, thank you for sharing this treasure! I would like to know if I may use certain sequences in my music video? I have one song that has a strong native, tribal vibe and I thought it would be very authentic to use some real footage instead of modern re-enactments. I would like to incorporate bits and pieces (dancing, close-up of the masks). I am not sure who to contact and the people at archive.org suggested writing here. Thank you in advance for your time.
